Dominic Nathaniel Calvert - Lewin (born 16 March 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Everton and the England national team.

"I look at Calvert - Lewin this season and he’ s listened to that, he’ s taken that on board. Obviously, he seems a real good student of the game and he’ s started putting that into his own game. "We’ve seen the rewards he’ s had, he’ s got into the England squad by scoring loads of goals in and around the six-yard box, scoring those ugly goals. Calvert - Lewin is also a senior international and expected to make Gareth Southgate' s England squad for this summer' s European Championship. Article continues below.

Tom Davies has spoken glowingly of team-mate and friend Dominic Calvert-Lewin's progression on and off the pitch, adding there is still more to come from the Everton striker.

Calvert-Lewin is enjoying the best goalscoring season of his career, having netted 19 times in all competitions for Everton, but the Toffees will be without him for Friday's clash with Tottenham due to the abductor injury which kept him out of Monday's draw at Brighton.

Davies is proud of the way Calvert-Lewin has answered some of his doubters and says his development is no surprise given the work he puts in behind the scenes at Goodison Park.

Calvert - Lewin had not got to sleep until around 2.30am after Wednesday night’s 4-1 League Cup victory over West Ham in which he scored three times. After he took the match-ball – which he will have framed – he tweeted: “No hatty no sleep”. A quick flick through Calvert - Lewin ' s social media offerings provides ample evidence of a man happy in his own skin - his amateur modelling poses alongside his Everton team-mate Tom Davies at New York Fashion Week in February were something of a viral sensation - but it is his football which has been the main beneficiary of his maturing mindset.

"I am so proud of him, he has been fantastic this year," Davies told Sky Sports News. "I think he has had a lot of people maybe putting a bit of doubt on him in previous years, but this year he has put all that to bed.

"Working with him every day, I can see the work that he puts in, how much time off the pitch he thinks about things, and really gets himself in the best frame of mind and physical state that he can be to perform how he has done.

"It is not a surprise to me how well he is doing, and I still think he has a lot of levels to reach - and will reach - because of the person he is and how professional he is.

A brace from Dominic Calvert - Lewin helped Everton return to winning ways after a five-goal thriller at Fulham, who suffered penalty disappointment yet again. Carlo Ancelotti saw the England striker net twice in the first half to take his club tally for the season to 13, with 10 of them in the Premier League, while Abdoulaye Doucoure’s first goal for the Toffees proved key in the end. Fulham had responded well to Calvert - Lewin ’ s bright opener with Bobby Decordova-Reid equalising soon after, but slack play at the back had them set for another defeat before they were handed a lifeline in the 67th minute.

"You always want to see your friends doing well, we are all buzzing for him and long may it continue. Off the pitch, the way he has grown as a person is also fantastic."

Davies, just over a year younger than Calvert-Lewin at 22, revealed the shared experience of progressing from the club's U23s side to the first team helped form their close bond.

Both are now primed to play a role in helping Everton continue their push to qualify for Europe, with Carlo Ancelotti having confirmed he expects Calvert-Lewin to return for next week's clash with Arsenal.

Everton, who sit eighth, will hope to put a strong run of form together between now and the end of the season, starting on Friday against Spurs, live on Sky Sports.

The Toffees drew 0-0 with Brighton in their last match and Davies is hopeful a positive outcome against a Tottenham side with similar European aspirations could be the boost they require.

"If we can get three points in the game on Friday, then it really does give us a spark and that might fuel us to carry on in the last stretch of the year with a lot of confidence and positivity," Davies added. "It is massive we get a positive result."
